Yeezus is back on the road again.

After Kanye West's entire tour was put on hold due to some essential props getting destroyed in an accident, the rapper's camp announced today that West will resume his tour on Nov. 16 in Philadelphia.

Yeezy postponed his Nov. 1 concert in Anaheim to Dec. 13 because of "production logistics," however Kanye was forced to push the entire tour back after the truck carrying the set's custom-made equipment was in an accident on the way to Vancouver.

"Yesterday, on the road to Vancouver, a truck carrying The Yeezus Tour's custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen was in an accident that damaged the gear beyond repair," a spokesman for Island Def Jam Music Group said in a statement obtained by E! News.

"This gear is central to the staging of The Yeezus Tour, and central to the creative vision put forth by Kanye West and his design team at DONDA."

To continue the good news—MTV decided to get a jumpstart on #FlashbackFriday by posting a raw cut, unreleased 2002 interview with West from You Hear It First. And it's absolutely amazing.

The up-and-coming artist (at the time), dressed in a red zip-up hoodie and baseball cap, showed off so much humility and excitement to finally get in the game. During his sit-down, Kanye would openly restate some things to give good quotes, get distracted by what was going on in the studio and even said he wanted some Boston Market!

One thing's still the same, however. Yeezy can talk for days. But it's so adorable. Watch below!
